A contingent of stage 3 students from Lightning Ridge Central School are in Canberra this week to see Parliament House, the National War Memorial, the Royal Mint and many more highlights of the National capital.

Other highlights of the trip include the National Science and Technology Centre – Questacon, the story of Canberra at the National Exhibition, Mount Ainslie Lookout, the National Arboretum, Mount Stromlo, the CSIRO, the Botanic Gardens, and the Dinosaur Museum.

In a jam-packed week, there is some “fun stuff” like rock climbing at night and a day at the snow, but most of the activities relate to the human society and environment curriculum (social science).

Principal Richard Finter said that the school usually takes students on this Canberra trip every two years, however Covid has prevented excursions over the past few years.
